|Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies were a surprise hit.|
A huge, grand thank you to everyone who came out last night to see the work of my incredible peers (some whom I will eternally miss) and I. Very kind, very sincere people visited my temporary second home, Studio Number 867, a soiled, fermenting ground where my work has been watered and blossoming sweet yet humble fruit. I appreciated those that lingered and listened to me discuss vibrant painted ideas surrounding them as well as hopes for the work's future. Some were interested in the writing elements, taking time reading my prose, wondering if visual and literary language would ever come to be married together like they so obviously desire. I treasured raised questions, feared flashing paparazzi bulbs, and championed on homemade cookie grabs. This has been one heck of an amazing thrill ride experience.

Needless to say, soft, moist, dark chocolate decadence was all gone before Open Studio Night struck it's nine o'clock ending chimes. Yes!
Again, thank you to the visitors, some dear friends, and delightful faculty for not only taking cookies and a peek inside 867, but for also making beautiful memories to reflect back on.

|I used every spare little scrap for these cookies.|
|Baking is an action packed process.|
|Stir in chocolate chunks and pecans. Scoop out batter in tablespoons onto a non-stick ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. The baking time lessens gradually after each batch.|
|Cool cookies first before stacking them up for storage.|
|Cookies are warm and ready to go!|
